Lip fillers. Don’t you love the endless possibilities of improving our features? Gone are the days when we couldn’t improve our facial features, or only a few could. The good news is that we don’t need to break the bank to do it. If you are considering getting lip fillers, here are a few tips to help you on your way.
No one will stop you from going all out and getting overfilled lips. But medical professionals are encouraging you to come up with realistic expectations. This is a beauty enhancement procedure, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So whatever floats your boat, go for it!
The best thing to do is to discuss what you want with your doctor and listen to the advice given. A one-cc lip injection will be enough if you want a realistic but noticeable improvement. If you want a fuller look, requesting your medical professional to inject two or three injections worth of lip filler is not uncommon.
Just like any other beauty enhancement, lip fillers will cost you money. Depending on the brand and how many injections worth you want to be done, a full syringe comes with a $400-$1,000 price tag.
Remember also that lip fillers will not be a once-in-a-lifetime event – meaning this is not permanent. This procedure can last between six months to a year, so you better start preparing for it.
Make sure you go for an initial consultation for a briefing on the preparation – what to do and what medicines to avoid, like aspirin, some food supplement, and vitamins. This is to ensure that there will be no reactions and minimal bruising after the treatment.
